Classical Turkish music. Its lyrics are in Ottoman Turkish (in Latin alphabet), not modern Turkish. It’s difficult to understand today for us without the help of Ottoman-Turkish dictionary.. It’s a song that presents feelings from another century, so beautiful and so naive.
Music: Hafız Yusuf Efendi
Maqam/melodic mode: Hicaz
A man loves a woman, his love burns in his heart and destroys it. A sad darkness surrounds him. He wants from his lover to hear his weeping and not to destroy his ruined heart any more.
Âteş-i aşkın harâb etti dil-i nâlânımı
Dud-i endûh-i melâmet kapladı her yanımı
Sevdiğim lutfeyle gûş et nâle vü efganımı
Yapmadın gel bari yıkma hatır-ı viranımı
